Gilles Cenazandotti Creates Colorful Beasts Out of Beachcombed Finds

The work of Gilles Cenazandotti, an artist born in Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean Sea, reminds people of just how much junk can be found in the oceans and seas from around the world. There is so much that Gilles Cenazandotti is able to color code them and then create life-sized beasts out of his beachcombed findings.

From gorgeous gold cheetahs and pure white polar bears to more fantastical red and blue creatures, Gilles Cenazandotti's animalistic sculptures are striking works of art. Visual News points out the dual nature of each of his sculptures, "They are bizarrely bright and imaginative, giving plenty of clues to their homely origins and the artist who made them. But at the same time, each sculpture has a life-like appearance as if captured in mid-stride." Stats for Marine Plastic Sculptures Trending: This Quarter & Popular
